What's everyone going to have tied on to use on opener next weekend? Or this weekend if you're fishing in WI

1. Two jerkbaits tied on. Maybe 3 :-)

2. Drop shot

3. Keitech swimbait

4. Shakeyhead craw or tube

5. Squarebill crank or DT6

6. Spinnerbait

7. Possibly topwater :-)

8. Football jig

I will be on Leech, most likely.

Shadow Rap
Booyah Pad Crasher
Outkast swim jig with various trailers...usually start with a Havoc Grass Pig 
Craw tube 
Outkast RTX jig w/Pit Boss trailer
Drop shot with KVD Dream Shot

I'm sure I will have 8 other rods rigged, but the above is what I will use most. I will probably throw a gold Jawbreaker around old rice and reeds a little too. That has been stupidly effective most openers for me, to the point where I don't know why I don't throw it more.

The Jawbreaker eh? I haven't thrown that lure in many many years, in fact I don't have any in my box anymore. I used to always joke about how it was weedless but also fishless as I never caught anything but Dogfish on them at my cabin.

I haven't thrown it as much for the last few years, but that's not because it doesn't produce. I have had some amaaaaaaazing days on Leech with it. Early in the season up to the point where rice starts laying flat on the surface, it's as good as anything you can throw on lakes with wild rice.

Chatterbait/Spinnerbait

T-rigged worm or lizard

Jig Worm if nothing shallow and the deeper weeds are up.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
